Easy solution is for the city to make the homeowners dig up the alleyway at their costs or face legal action. Looks like the owners can afford to return the alleyway back to how it was before they illegally built on it

Looks like the guy lost. Existing "improvements" can stay but it is "vacated" by the city but is still a right of way so no future changes.

It would be costly for the city to restore one alleyway? That's a lame argument if ever I heard one. The people who built without a permit should pay for everything.

I look at it this way not at all the neighbors are bickering amongst themselves raising attention to the city if they weren't greedy and would have divided it equally to wear benefited everybody then if I would never mattered but now nobody's going to get it you watch cuz they're all greedy

Back to the original survey
No one is entitled to free land no matter what improvements they’ve done illegally

Something like this happened in a town I lived in in south Georgia, though there it was a railroad. Back in the 90's, a short line railroad through the town I lived in had been 'embargoed' due to a bridge needing replaced. Embargoed doesn't mean abandoned though. Railroads will often re-open such lines. Well, in the early 2000's, a developer bought up land around the line, and started putting in houses. At some point, the developer just opted to remove the railroad that cut through where he wanted to put houses. That was all fine and dandy until 2005, when the railroad got a grant from the government to fix the bridge that needed replaced. Those houses that got built on it? Seized under imminent domain and bulldozed. The owners tried fighting it, but eventually everything ended up going back to them having to get their money back from the developer that had built and then sold the houses in the first place. All told, I think seven or eight homes were bulldozed and demolished, and the city itself had to replace a bridge that they had removed as part of a one-way pairing they had done. Cost the developer upwards of several million dollars to pay out to the home owners and the city had to foot the bill to build a new bridge.
